Amethyst used to be considered a precious gem. Then they found so much of it in south america that you can buy it at a hobby shop instead of a jewelry store.
You base a currency on gold, someone finds a cheap way to extract it from sea water or asteroid mine it and you're hosed.
Actually... No. That "say in a dark room trying to light candles that never light up" is a standard test for all maesters. Even those who don't study any mystical arts.
Which would just take the magocide to another level. Its the perfect wizard trap. you have a giant library full of books to go "here wizard wizard wizard" and then if you find out they're a wizard you smash them before they hit level 5.

Something in the series i've always wondered is if dragons bring the magic, or if they ride out low magic periods the way a frog rides out droughts by leaving eggs behind ready to rehydrate.
Pyatt pree saying that the magic was strongest around the dragons indicates the first one, but i like the second a lot better.

The obvious typos are there anyway.
you have to deal with that.
You can either pick from competing postulates and insist that the answer that you know is wrong is objectively right anyway, or compare and contrast evidence for both sides. That makes it obvious which way to deal with the obvious typos.
Besides... It's much easier and faster to make weapons and ammo of "dragon glass".
join our army and stab the undead abominations with a rock...
What?!?!?!? Hell no!
Join our army and get a valyrian steel sword....
Take my sons, please.
The thing is that dragonglass only works against the white walkers, it doesn't work against the dead that they raise.

He turned on cersei after her walk of shame and suggested that they put greggor down.
In the books the creepy kids stabbed kevin, but no one knows who he is so they used pycel.
As a maester he's not part of the church hierarchy: they're a seperate institution. I don't think he would have had a place in a formal church court.
He also doesn't Like qybern and has made moves against him.
Danerys: "You want me to lead my army deep into your territory because an army undead are being lead by a thousand year old magical experiment bent on killing us all.
Danerys: Are you insane?
John: Perhaps I should go tell the night king i need his help because some lady just flew on in three fire breathing dragons and see if he thinks the same thing..
Littlefinger's plan rested on Sansa being in charge of house Stark/Winterfell. That plan died when the bannermen all declared for Jon.
Kind of ironic since Neds downfall was because he didn't understand southern courts and littlefinger doesn't understand northern honor.
And the white walkers. really hard trying to plan for an out of context threat like that , that would get John snow to ally with ANYONE, even the lanisters, to stop.

Considering that would be a move action, probably not. Move actions are normally not AS vital to casters as martials but you still need them.
Both danny and tyrion are far more pragmatic than that. The north has chosen John Snow, trying to foster the patricidal devil imp that forced Sansa into marying him at crossbow point before her fathers head had finished rolling down the steps of the sept* isn't going to fly. The north is too big to conquer, even with three dragons.
Marying John snow may be a possibility. (even if she's his cousin?- Targaryn's do closer family ties) She already controls house lanister through tyrion, the martels through revenge, the dornish through revenge.. she really could send back for daario, cersei doesn't have anyone left. She may have to turn shame nun into an army of greggorsteins.
*little of this is true, but its close enough to be seen that way

there were hundreds of other people in the big room alone, as well as several city blocks around it with falling church bells and other debris. I'd but the "collateral damage" in the high hundreds low thousands, which is a LOT of people in a world where a three foot piece of steel is the standard weapon technology
Cersei just did what Jamie killed the mad king to stop from happening.
On top of that, Cersei will be killed by her vonqulor, which means little monster/little brother. She's always assumed that this is tryion.
She is however, about 5 minutes older than jamie. Making him a candidate, one that just got a lot more likely.
Correct, though the proper response is often quite different between the cases. Someone being offensive through ignorance can be handled by fixing the ignorance, for example. Someone being deliberately offensive cannot. You can often tell the difference by their reaction to finding out you're hurt or offended.
I think you hit on this with your last sentence, but it interacts here...
Someone that has offended someone isn't automatically ignorant or boorish. It is possible that the offended party is being too sensitive. That possibility opens up a legitimate "chill out" response from the person being offensive on their opinion that the other person is being too sensitive.
What we must ask ourselves is this: Is the intent of the player to hurt other players with their character? Has the player shown hurtful and offensive behavior to other players out of character, or before/after the scenario? Do they appear to be particularly malicious with any player? Have they been asked to tone it down/stop and chosen to continue? If it appears to be the case, then yes, you have a disruptive player that needs to be kicked off the table and reported.
There's a disconnect between two underlying philosophies here. Is something offensive only when someone intends to offend or whenever someone is offended? One gives leave for people to be pretty hurtful with an excuse of "just joking" and the other stifles spontaneity and free spirit because someone can be offended, bothered, or read a negative implication into anything.
This being the internet of course a nuanced position between the two isn't possible. Anyone more towards one side or the other than you is automatically all the way on the other side.

Something can be hurtful or offensive without intent, and something can cause offense without being offensive.
Well it was more, 'Cersei isn't here? Go fetch her.' and when Marg gave her warning 'Hmm...we might get attacked. Move out of the Sept!"
Since bombs that can blow up a building are pretty much unheard of in westeros, one would expect such an attack to come from lanister guardsmen outside with crossbows shooting in. The building is made of stone, so setting fire to it wouldn't be easy. If she's attacking staying inside and NOT running out into potential danger is a very reasonable move- more reasonable than running outside to be shot.

You owe him an apology for accusing him of making stuff up.
there's a note at the start of the books that the events are not neccesarily occuring in the order that you see them. Arya has been training for X amount of time , and sailing for x amount of time, she didn't neccesarily start back to westerose the day before the battle of the bastards.
Also, its easier to get from bravosi to winterfel than from kings landing to winterfel. The narrow sea is a highway, not an obstacle course.
